Ireland, and to affift him with money to increafehîa followers, for that had been agreed on by the par-liament. It had been ordered that the duke, on fetting out for Ireland, where he was to remain three years, fhould have the command of five hun-dred men at arms and fifteen hundred archers, paid by England, and that money for this purpofe fhould be pun&ually remitted to him *. But the duke had ' no inclination to go thither ; for, as the king was fo young, he managed him as he pleafed, and, Jhould he leave him, he was afraid the king's affec-tion would be cooled. • Add to this, he was fo greatly enamoured .with one of the queçn's damfels, called the Landgravine, that he could never quit her. She was a tolerably handfome pleafant lady, whom the queen had brought with her from Bo-hemia. The duke of Ireland loved her with fuch ardour., that he was defirous of making her, if poffible, his duchefs by marriage. He took great pains to ob-, tain a divorce from his prefent duchefs, the daugh-ter of the earl of Bedford, from Urban VI., whom the Englifh and Germans acknowledged as pope. All the good people of England were much. * There h a variation in the copies of the original, as Jean Petit runs thus:-*1' When he departed from the king and his uncles, it was agreed with him that in cafe he fhould go on this voyage, he fhould have, at the charge of England, five hundred men at arms and fifteen hundred archer». And it was ordered that he fhould abide there three years, and that he fhould al-ways be well paid.** This reading appears to be fimpler than* that of the. text. See Jean Pewit's e^tion^ vol. III. pt 46. aftonifhed 532
